For a virus-like coronavirus, there’s not much a person can do to protect themselves from it except for taking some precautionary measures. One bad thing that comes with the coronavirus is that it spreads very quickly. So if an infected person sneezes or coughs around you – boom! You have the virus.
Until a vaccine is developed, there is not much even the hospitals can do for the people. Some infected people do not have the symptoms of the disease, while, some face extremely rough symptoms.
What can you do for protection against COVID-19?
Here is a list of things that you follow to protect yourself against the virus.
- Wash your hands often for about 20 seconds. Make sure to use an alcohol-based rub.
- Keep a 6ft distance between you and others to stop the spread of the disease.
- Always wear a face mask to protect your nose and mouth or from spreading the illness from you.
- Stay home as much as you can, especially if you have the symptoms.
- Never touch your mouth, eyes, and nose when you are out.
- Seek medical attention if you have the symptoms
Cover your cough or sneeze with the bend of your elbow or use a tissue.
The virus is known to spread through droplets of sneeze or cough, which is why it’s important to always be vigilant when you’re in public. Also, if you use a tissue, then make sure to dispose of them properly.
What’s the future of Coronavirus?
Started in 2019, 2020 is almost ending, but the world is still facing problems in eliminating the virus from the world. A vaccine is the need of the hour to fight off coronavirus once and for all. Without a vaccine, there’s not much the higher authorities or medical staff can do to protect people from it.
Plasma treatment is known to show effective results in treating the patients of COVID-19, but it cannot go on for long. The vaccine is the only proper solution to the problem.
What’s the Take?
There is only one take – protect yourself and others. Take the necessary precautions to ensure that nobody else gets the disease because of you. Follow the instructions that the government is giving out and save yourself from catching the virus. You will not even know how it got transmitted into you if you don’t follow the necessary precautions. Make sure you’re well-protected!
